    Abstract

    This Study was carried out within the framework of the Pacific Europe Network for Science and Technology (PACE-Net), a European Commission (EC)-funded project. The PACE-Net project seeks to improve regional and bi-regional collaboration and cooperation activities in science and technology (S&T) research within the Pacific and between Europe and the Pacific (ACP and OCT). Its global aim is to develop networks between Pacific and European stakeholders from research entities, universities, industries, policy-makers, programme managers and civil society in order to facilitate and establish balanced and multidisciplinary partnerships in priority areas of mutually beneficial research. Energy is one the theme on which the survey study was carried on. The presentation will be on renewable research in comparison to other research themes in the Pacific. Furthermore the renewable energy research institutions, their projects and the total cost of research in the Pacific is discussed. It is seen that only 4% of the total research in the Pacific is on energy and most of its collaboration happens nationally. The percentage of energy research projects is also compared with the pacific goals in energy and the funding/research/collaboration gap is discussed. The results are further divided on ACP1, OCT2 and regional organisations3 in Pacific for specific data.
